The processor and the party that is responsible for the personal data (‘the controller’) are legally required to conclude a data processing agreement with each other; concluding agreements regarding security, responsibilities when dealing with data subject rights, audit rights, data breach-protocols and more. These agreements clarify the roles of each party.
The requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) apply not only to the controller, who issues the processing instructions, but to the processor as well. The controller and processor are jointly and severally liable towards the data subjects.
It is therefore all the more necessary to conclude a clear data processing agreement. Legal ICT would be pleased to help you with this, by either reviewing your current data processing agreement(s) or by drafting one from scratch.
